The 8000m Peak Team

Oh my goodness, I am not sure that the Himalayas are ready for these guys.

In 10 days time Ronny departs for his Lhotse Expedition.

In 10 days time Rory departs for his Everest Expedition.

In 4 weeks time, Di departs for her Cho You Expedition - better late than never ...

I will be remaining professional at all times and will not being throwing snowballs from afar towards them and I definitely will not be heckling them on the radio.

For the past 3 days, we have climbed and down climbed lots of puddles of snow.

However, having mastered the art of surviving a very pathetic attempt at Scottish Winter, the biggest dilemma for the past 3 days, was what cake to have.  Boys ... really ...

At long last winter has arrived

The thing about writing a bloggie thing is that you have to be indoors, sitting in front of the computer.

This is not necessarily a bad thing if the rain is lashing against the windows, but this evening, the sun is streaming in the sun room and the birds are chirping away outside.

In fact, ever since coming back home from our awesome road trip to Colorado, the weather has been pretty special.

It finally feels as if winter has arrived.

I am lucky to spend time with some pretty cool people who make me smile .... I mean really smile.

What is more important is the environment that we choose to live in.  How is it possible to not be happy in the mountains?

I really do think that the NHS should prescribe mountain adventures.  It would probably work out much cheaper in the short term and long term.

I now feel very smug since the backlog of emails have been cleared, my desk is clean, I baked a cake (never burnt it which is a bonus and it doesn't feel like a brick) and I am fully stoked for another fun packed week.
